Whitney was inspired to #RockTheBald because of the work she did at Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters.

“I have gotten a front row seat to new diagnoses, success stories, and deaths. I wanted to do my part and raise money for my kiddos.”

She went above and beyond, blowing past her fundraising goal to rake in nearly $2,000! Get involved at a St. Baldrick’s event near you: [ Bit.ly Link ]
